Wednesday, February 25, 2015
Posted by: Lorraine Cashman
The new online
highlighting video gaming as related to religion, culture, and society, invites
paper submissions for its first upcoming regular issue. Gamevironments is
hosted at the University of Bremen, Germany, as an international and
multidisciplinary collaboration effort by the University of Bremen in Germany
and the University of Helsinki in Finland.
As the journal’s title
suggests, researching video games by today is not limited to the established
media-centered approaches. On the contrary, also the "games/gaming" –
"environments" and actor-centered approaches need to be highlighted.
Gamevironments consist of both, the technical environments of video
games/gaming and the cultural environments of video games/gaming. The journal
welcomes contributions applying all approaches and highlighting all fields of
investigation related to video games/gaming and religion, culture, and society
in the diverse global video game and gaming landscape.
categories of texts are included in the journal: regular academic articles, interviews (eg,
with games designers), research reports, book reviews and games reviews. For
